The Heretics and a 6 hour train journey,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Heretics (John Shakespeare) (Paperback)
I have waited impatiently for the next John Shakespeare and the arrival of The Heretics coincided with a 6 hour train journey - which just flew by. Not that I finished the book in those 6 hours, there is too much to savour. How does Rory Clements do it? This is the fifth substantial tome, and by now you usually feel that the author is feeling the pain of developing his characters. Not a bit of it here, they continue to develop, showing nuances you would not have expected from the earlier books and I certainly want to meet them again in the next volume, to see how they react to what else late Tudor life and society throws at them. This tells you nothing of the plot and I intend to keep it that way, except to say I shall never look at a sailmakers' needle in the same way again. Purchase. Read. Enjoy.
